On 19.01.2015 my husband and I had some fish for dinner from a local restaurant. We had intercourse that evening and it was so painful I couldn't continue. The follow morning I had all the symptoms of food poisoning. Despite this I went to work. I had the chills, the body ache, nausea and fever. The only thing I didn't have was a runny tummy. That evening I couldn't sleep from the severe pain in my right side abdomen. Which I thought was quiet strange. I was open every 2hours and I would just take an OTC medication for cramps.
21.01.2015 I went to my GP and he confirmed that it was in fact not food poisoning but rather an ovarian cyst or appendix as the pain was only on my right side. He prescribed anti-inflammatories, pain medication and an antibiotic. Still waking up every 2hours from the pain.
22.01.2015 at 2am I couldn't take the severe pain and my husband rushed me to the ER. They had me on a drip with strong medication. I went for x-rays and blood tests which were clear. The doctor released me at 5am and said I should go later for a sonar to determine if it's an ovarian cyst or appendix.
At 2pm I went for the sonar as I could eventually sleep after the pain medication I received via drip. At 3pm after the sonars the doctor put me on another drip for pain whilst waiting for my results. On the scan they picked up a cyst of 2.9cm x 2.6 cm. what type I don't know as I was not told. The doctor discharged me again with strong medication for pain, inflammatiom and cramps. He also said I should follow up with my gynecologist in a couple of weeks. As soon as I got to the car I started vomiting which lasted for the whole evening. I even took my medication and couldn't keep that in. Today is 25.01.2015 and my condition hasn't improved. I'm in such severe pain that I'm crying most of the time. I have this frequent need to urinate which makes the pain in my right side worst. Since this whole thing happened I have been constipated. The pain is so bad that it's causing nausea. I'm using a heating pad to elevate the pain which doesn't help.
I have to go back to work tomorrow and I don't know how I will be able too.
To give some background I'm 24 and was on Depo-Provera for 4years, went off 01.02.2014. I got my first period 24.12.2015 which lasted for a week, and them was gone for a week and then came back for 3days.
I don't know what to do. Please any advise would be appreciated. I can't take this pain anymore.
